Woodworking Tools

Woodworking tools have been used since mankind first walked the earth. The first spears were sharpened with flint tools and trees were carved out with hand made axes to make boats. We have moved on a little since these primitive tools and now produce carving and woodworking tools for practically any task desired.

More modern woodworking tools are made from hardened steel and stainless steel were once the were fashioned from copper or bronze. These newer materials keep their edge better and require less sharpening. They are precision made and machined to give a better finish.

The range of woodworking tools today extend from hand saws that can cut quicker than ever before due to cleverly designed teeth on the blade allowing cutting in both directions to chisels and carving tools which keep their edge far longer than ever before and can be sharpened down to the last inch of blade.

One of the most commonly used woodworking tools is the router which, when used with the worktop jig, is often used to cut out kitchen worktops and cupboard doors.
